The Library has recently promoted Alexus Hunt to the manager position at the Center for Black Literature & Culture (CBLC) in Central Library. Though the work of Black authors can be found throughout The Library’s system, the CBLC provides a deeper dive for those seeking to celebrate the contributions of the Black community or build a better awareness of Black culture and heritage.

Hunt has a Master of Library Science and just recently earned her Master of African American and African Diaspora Studies degree. Prior to her promotion, she was a Youth Services Librarian at the new Fort Ben Branch Library. Hunt shared her vision for the CBLC, saying, “I envision the CBLC as a hub for fostering understanding and appreciation of the contributions of people of African descent, locally and globally.” For more information about the CBLC and its programs, visit
